I quit smoking......

Friend of mine did the math and pointed out how much money I was spending on smokes. So I quit and used that extra cash to justify the jump to a new SS.

I LOVED my LS and will miss it but this thing is insane! The dual mode exhaust is worth every penny! Anyone on the ledge about buying a new Chevy soon should go do it now, I got 0% for 72 months.

Congrats. It's a beauty. Much better off smoking the rear tires than a pack of cigarettes.

Yup. I quit smoking cigarettes and only smoke the occasional cigar. Hobby changed to tinkering with my cars.

That math should have been obvious to you every time you bought a pack of smokes.

The one bad thing about this upgrade is that I've spent the entire day so far looking out the window at my new car instead of working. This day is just dragging on.

Congrats! But be careful on those cigars!!! I got hooked and damn, are they expensive! I go through cigars international now for all my orders. Pretty good...only got a few bad ones so far. But they have an ok selection at good prices.

Here's to hoping that the only smoking you'll do from now on will only be from the rear tires!

Great looking car and congrats on kicking the habit! That dual mode exhaust is sweet. I really wanted it on mine!

I quit drinking 2 1/2 years ago and was able to bump to the 2SS Camaro and buy a Harley Electra Glide classic to boot! Amazing the money I spent on alcohol! Cigs at $6 a pack can add up fast!

Dang, Camaro and a Harley. The little lady would slaughter me! I've been living in Madison WI for the last 2 months (Work thing) and it was $9 a pack up there. Doing that math was easy haha. I love the look of your SS.

$11?! That's obnoxious. I was up to a pack a day. Life is good and I haven't stopped smiling since I drove her off the lot.

Congrats on quitting smoking and using the money on the upgrade.

I did the same thing 2 years ago. Figured 1 pack a day, $10 a pack for $300 per month. That's a car payment. It was a no brainer. I won't even smoke a cigar for fear of going back. It is so worth using the car as an incentive to quit.

Looks like I need to pick up smoking a couple packs a day and then quit in a year, then I'll be able to upgrade to a ZL1
the drug addiction will teach me to save money for what my body thinks is important... then I'll be able to do anything!
